"Spirited and zesty, with lively cherry and smoky cracked pepper flavors that frolic on the long finish toward well-groomed tannins. Drink now through 2024. 8,220 cases made. — TF"
"Old Vine Mendocino Zinfandel is a treasure. Grown on the benchlands & slopes of mountainsides — this 60 plus year old vine Zinfandel was named for these wild- looking vines & also for the uninoculated, or “wild,” yeast ferment that was used to create it. It takes a lot of effort to tame this wild fruit, but it is worth all the trouble. Wild Thing is dangerously good! Remember – you are what you drink. . . .
Aromas of black cherry, ripe plum & raspberry fruit combine with a hint of cigar box, & vanilla-oak baking spice loveliness. Smoothly textured in mouth, & the palate is very creamy & round, with a finish that is long with lush jammy fruit." - Winery
